Trivia

At around 5 minutes into the film, Sally Reardon (Virginia Bruce) holds up her middle finger towards husband William Reardon (Melvyn Douglas), inadvertently flipping him the bird. At the beginning of the film Sally wakes up with a ribbon tied around her middle finger in order to remember something, but doesn't recall until a phone call during breakfast - that William had an important meeting at his office with his client Mr. Stone (Paul Harvey). As innocent as this seems, audiences in 1938 would most likely have known what that gesture really meant. If this scene aired on modern day broadcast television, her finger would be blurred out.

Quotes

Tony Croy: You know, you don't make very many mistakes baby, but you certainly made one when you forgot to divorce me before you married this Wall Street sucker. Now then, are you going to give me the stuff or do I have to be nasty and carry tales.

In this second, and last, comical film that involves The Reardon Detective Agency where a husband, Bill Reardon, has to deal with a meddling wife, Sally Reardon to solve a crime of theft from a large jewelry store. At first Bill believes that he knows who is taking the stolen items and ask for time to track down the person that is working with the individual. This is when Sally drops by her husband detective business and decides to interview a possible client. The client just so happens to be the same person that her husband suspects is stealing the jewels. Bill, the husband, will only find out later that his wife has the suspect on retainer as a client.

Even though this movie has not aged well, there are some funny scenes that keeps the viewer entertained throughout the film. The acting was comparable with anything today but it was the props and feel of the film that made a viewer feel as if watching a lost period from long ago. Even with the nice acting by all involved, it never really caused much excitement. A nice look at what comedy use to be-- actually wished they would have made a third installment.
